Your answer is the same as I found.
95238 * 7 = 666666

Given the difficulty level it must be assumed the numbers are base-10 composed of decimal digits. If a broader assumption is made, one can find "bigger" 5 digit numbers. I.e., in base 12, B2796 * 7 = 666666; and
B279612 = 23267410  >  9523810
As there is are limits of 5 digits multiplied by 1 digit to equal a 6 digit repdigit number, and if limited to a maximum base of 36, there must be a definite largest number that exists. This problem of course would not be a difficulty 1 level problem (except that one could use a computer program to solve it almost as easy).
